of that with the connection with the port and the next bond so it serves as a great example how we use the park bonds to of benefit of all of our users and residents and especially because we want our southeast sector to continue evolving in a positive way for everybody. it has been a trial for many of the residents here for many years because of the leadership of the different agencies working together with environmental advocates to make sure we strike that right balance we can have the spaces used for the different use and it is enjoyment of the environment at the same time for the residents. thank you for being here with this announcement. we get four things out of this. a dog run, heron's head park with the landscape and wonderful access to it. we have the literacy for justice modernization here and of course we have the bi- directional lines for the bicycles and thanks for being here and congratulations to everybody. it has been a great part of this collaboration. this great team work and go giants and now go warriors.

. brad again here and i have been with the port team with this and various people. we have a couple of representatives from at&t here with whom city staff has been negotiating. darren in the front row and artearo smith was here and still maybe here or his jacket is anyway and i have a brief presentation to you. we have been to you in open session describing this project. it's an important transmission project designed to provide reliability of power downtown in the event of a major earthquake. is manny around to start the powerpoint presentation? >> sorry for the short delay. so i will start verbally and the slides can catch up. essentially there are a couple of transmission lines that come up from the peninsula through the po tearo power plant and connect to the embarcadero substation that provide power to downtown. at&t has proposed a new 230kv transmission line to provide redundant transmission line to the embarcadero sub station. at&t and port staff have collectively communicated with the mayor's office, the san francisco public utilities commission and the city administrato
revenue since you know the port operates on the rents we earn. so, that's the basic business deal outlined in the term sheet that we're looking for endorsement of. the second action is the final -- >> before you go too far, in terms of the business terms and the expenses, i think one of the points that were made in the past was the fact that i think you spoke a little bit about why it was not 106 million, why 58 million might be a reasonable number. primarily it has to do with sort of the engineering expertise of the partner that we have brought on board who has done rehab work in the past. but also the fact that you're not really building it out completely. so, really just creating the shell and allowing for future tenants to come in and make those improvements into the facility, which reduces much of the cost. and i guess i'm just wondering, should there be a situation where it's not 58 million, it's a different number, a higher number, is there sort of an upper cap? is there sort of a limit? because i think you spoke to -- you started to speak to, which is right now the expectation is t
of the engineering staff from here at the port, an engineer from san francisco puv, and engineer from dpw. all three have experience here in the city and working with contract engineering firms. the process they went through -- they submitted initially as part of the response a written proposal. the team reviewed those proposals and scored them. each of the team was invited to make an oral presentation and answer specific questions to the team and those presentations and answers were scored as well. hrc staff reviewed each of the proposals and awarded bonus points and a letter is attached to the item. all three of the winning teams actually received the bonus points, and again those were parsons and jb and deangelo, ags so each of the master contracts will have a three year term and with an option of the port to extend them for additional year. each contract will have a not to exceed limit of 1.5 million dollars over the total life of the contracts. i am happy to answer questions that the commission have and we have peter here to answer any questions you have. >> so moved. >> second. >> any pub
oceana will talk about development around port development at this site. justin from a and e comwill give overview of the proposed project. peter albert from mta will talk about the transportation assessment that is going out in the embarcadero right now and inform the environmental review process if for this and we will discussed fiscal terms and feasibility analysis and the framework that informs that and then we will conclude with a few words from the warriors who would like to talk a little bit about what this project really means for the city and for the port, and finally we willing asking to you extend some of the deadlines in the exclusive negotiating agreement to allow us to negotiate a comprehensive term sheet which we hope to bring to you by april of next year so with that as mentioned there was a advisory committee formed for the port and from that committee there are three tracks of workshops that have begun or soon to begin. we are doing transportation workshops to talk about challenges in the south beach, mission bay neighborhood, some of which are -- due to existing condi
that there be a rule and enforced on all negotiations, particularly the golden state warriors that in the case the port, owd and particularly the warriors not participate as members of the public, and wear big badges saying who they are because people hide behind anonymity and i know because i of around the block oweb -- i don't know the golden state warriors but the know the port and oweb but i'm unusual and most are true civilians and it's unfair for them to have to argue from a person from one of these groups when you're soliciting public input. either shut the hell up and/or identify yourself and this came out directly from the last session of the input on 32-32 because the warriors went way over the line. thank you. >> okay. any further public comment? okay. >> item four is executive session. >> so moved. >> second. >> we are in executive session.

as well as a number of private conversations including some this morning next door in pier one at the port's affair breakfast this morning. people do not understand what it is, either commissioner katdz or sue hester can correct me but i believe it was put in place by then supervisor aaron peskin as a baseline so the city on large projects can say this can pencil out or can't. it should stop some fly by night stuff people tried to propose and it serves that purpose. it's vetted by harvey rose and says yeah it can fly if all of these things come into play. they come into place at the time of the term sheet and the last negotiations. they're sort of in my opinion the fiscal fiscallablity study is like an eir and takes the big box and study everything in the box and see whether it's possible, what are the mitigations, and then guild within that box. the same thing with the fiscal feasibility study it's to look at it and come down to the actual terms. i know it's a very aggressive plan. the concept to play in arena in 2017 blew everyone's mind and still does. i don't know if it can be d
commissioners. brad benson special projects manager representing the port staff on the negotiating team. so we wanted to take a moment to explain to both the commission and the public the difference phases of this proposed negotiations for the project. city staff has been working and the port and owed staff in consultation with the city attorney working with the warriors to come up with a conceptual framework for the business deal which is really looking at the cost to rehabilitate piers 30-32 so it's seismically sound and can support the multi-purpose venue on it, and how the warriors will initially finance that investment and how the city would repay that investment to public property, and jennifer mattes will go over that a little more detail but that conceptual framework is published to this point to support the fiscal feasibility finding and with these projects the port and city staff will pursue policy approvals with a term sheet with fiscal approval. it was the staff's suggestion to separate the two and really the fiscal feasibility finding, again which jennifer will speak to, is necess

's action what we're asking the port to do is amend the exclusive negotiating agreement which is the framework for negotiating the transaction between the port and the warriors. we ask that you have benchmarks for the framework and extend the date to endorse the term sheet. one of the concerns we heard from the public this is moving quickly and they want to understand the overall structure of this deal. we think pushing these dates back to a target date of february 15 and performance date of april 15 gives the time to work with the cac, interested stakeholders, you and the board of supervisors in order to create a robust sheet that answers many of the questions that have been raised so with they am happy -- so with that i would like to introduce rick welts and have just frame the project a little bit for us all. >> thank you jenn. thank you commissioners, port staff. my only role here today is express the commitment and enthusiasm of the warriors organization for the success of this project. i could do that in about 90 minutes but thinking you might not be interested i

50% of the population of new york, the first port of call for the majority of immigrants, was foreign-born. but attitudes were changing. toward the end of the 19th sentry, just 1.6% of immigrants were asian. but apparently that was enough to push congress to pass the chinese exclusion act in 1882 restricting immigration from china for ten years. as public opinion turned against certain kinds of immigrants in the early 20th century, more legislative restrictions began to take hold. in 1924, the johnson-reid immigration act created a quota system. it puts caps on the number of immigrants that could come to the u.s. from a particular country. the act also included a provision that made certain immigrants ineligible for citizenship based on race or nationality. by the middle of the 20th septemberry, the face of immigration to the united states had begun to change. by the end of the 1970s, a third of the foreign-born population of the country hailed from latin america. today that trend has continued. in the last census, more than half of the foreign born population is from latin america. o
